We'd been before.... some years ago. The food then was a little disappointing.
However, the other week we just popped in for lunch and really enjoyed the experience.

The service was polite and friendly.
The food delicious.
The wine was excellent. The owner told me afterwards that it was one of her favourites ----and I could see why!

We had spaghetti a vongole and oven-cooked sea bass as our main courses. Yummy.

Would we go there again? Certainly!

Been coming here for several years now after discovering it by accident. Absolutely fabulous place. Run by an Italian family headed by Maria who always makes you feel welcome. The food is lovely and well priced but, it is the atmosphere and the staff that make every visit special. This was a birthday surprise for my other half with 18 of us and as usual we were made to feel special and looked after.
Cannot recommend a visit enough, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks as ever Maria, Franco, Angelo etc. See you again soon

It was a busy Friday evening, the place was warm and buzzing. The food delicious and plentiful. The atmosphere was lovely.

My wife and I are big fans of Italian food. Genuine cuisine from that great country is hard to find outside its shores - but here, in Tunbridge Wells is a place that really is like being in Napoli. Fabulous food!

We had dinner on a Thursday evening and was surprisingly busy!

The restaurant serves good honest, obviously freshly cooked Neapolitan cuisine.

I had a fish main which was nicely cooked, my partner had a Calzone which was a little under cooked with not much filling or garnish to go with it, which was a little disappointing.

The complimentary lemoncello at the end was a nice touch.

Starters where priced at circa £7. Mains at circa £14 so not bad value.
